Bitch Lit Book Club: Negroland

  • Waterstones, Gower Street Gower Street London, England, WC1E United Kingdom (map)

BITCH LIT is a new monthly book club devoted to seminal feminist texts and cult classics by women. Join us for endless wine, mezze platters and irreverent, fun discussion led by literary critic Lucy Scholes and Gower Street's Elizabeth Morris. Book you place here.

Our book for December 1st will be Margo Jefferson’s NEGROLAND: A MEMOIR. At once incendiary and icy, mischievous and provocative, celebratory and elegiac—here is a deeply felt meditation on race, sex, and American culture through the prism of the author’s rarefied upbringing and education among a black elite concerned with distancing itself from whites and the black generality while tirelessly measuring itself against both.
